#100happydays Tracks in the sand

While waiting for my bus the other day I saw these heavy tracks in the sand near the bus stop.  I had to photograph them, because they seemed so much deeper than usual.

This is a test run!

I have had some issues getting things to automatically  post to my Facebook and Twitter. I am posting this to see if it will work properly.


If everything works out correctly, I will be back to my regular scheduled blogs.

A Study of a tree for use in diorama making

While waiting for my bus a few days ago I took these photos of a tree.  

I build scale models and am starting to do dioramas more often.  

These close ups of this tree show all the detail and color range, so that when I do trees in my dioramas the colors will be correct and I can try and add details to the tree or be sure that the details are correct.


Notice how the color of the branches and trunk can change ,  ever so slightly from one photo to another.

Some is shadow, some is how the wood has peeled off at points. 

None the less, this gives some fine details and even from a natural point of view the photos are beautiful.

#100happydays Here comes the sun

Woke up to this magnificent sunrise just a few minutes ago.

 This is what got me to notice the sunrise, the sunlight reflected on the living room wall.

Nature outside the Fitzsimmons Apartment complex June 24th 2014

About half a block up from where I live is another dual apartment complex, it is the Fitzsimmons Apartment complex or simply known as the Fittz,

Outside the entryway of these building are some flowers and trees.  I have always loved these displays of nature and on June 24th of this year I took these photos.  

I hope you enjoy them.

#100happydays Reflections Thursday July 17th 2014

Two days ago, while waiting for a bus I captured these photos of reflections in rain,  This is where there is a pothole that has collected rain water and is quite beautiful.  This was taken at East Colfax Ave at Peoria Street.
